CAMEX 2017

REGISTRATION for C2O events begins 8/1/16.

This year the Connect2One events and NACS CAMEX education sessions will take place at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.

As always, the C2O Education Day provides loads of tips for efficient use of time at CAMEX. Whether it's scouting out the best deals from the best vendors or finding those "hot" category trends to boost sales, C2O Program Managers put you on the fast track to making the most out of your time on the trade show floor.

On Thursday we will have a full day of sessions, exclusive to C2O stores, including the ever-popular In-Depth Reviews. 

This year our schedule will include an open What's Hot session on Saturday. So, come one - come all, to our expanded session being held on Saturday, March 4, 2017.
